Get Your Glow On!

Jan 27, 2024

Hello lovely readers,

Today, I want to talk about a skincare product that has significantly transformed my skin - my You Glow face serum. Specifically, I want to share what makes up my formula that has been giving me a happy, healthy, and glowy complexion for the past 6 months.

Before I share my secret blend of oils, let me tell you a bit about my skin journey. As someone with dry, sensitive skin, finding the right skincare products has always been a struggle for me. The harsh chemicals in store-bought products often left my skin feeling irritated, dull , tight and RED! That's when I decided to take matters into my own hands and create my own serum using natural, active ingredients - no fillers or harmful chemicals here.

Let's dive into the benefits of each ingredient in my face serum and how it contributes to achieving a happy, healthy, and glowy complexion.

First up, we have yarrow oil. I hand gathered, dried and extracted the yarrow in my serums with an avocado and single origin extract virgin olive oil process. This powerful ingredient is known for its ability to heal dryness, making it a great addition for those with dry or mature skin. It also boasts anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties, making it effective in shrinking imperfections and reducing the appearance of pimples, dark spots, and fine lines. Yarrow oil truly works wonders for achieving a clear and bright complexion.

Next, we have castor oil. This thick and nourishing oil is rich in fatty acids and has been used for centuries for its many skin benefits. It deeply moisturizes the skin, leaving it soft and supple. It also has anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties, making it effective in reducing inflammation and breakouts. Castor oil is also known to fade scars and dark spots, making it a must-have for achieving an even skin tone.

To take things up a notch, my serum also includes geranium oil. This powerhouse ingredient has a plethora of benefits for the skin. It is known to balance oil production, making it suitable for all skin types. It also helps to improve skin elasticity, reduce fine lines, and boost circulation - giving you a youthful and radiant complexion. The sweet and floral scent of geranium oil also adds an extra touch of indulgence to my skincare routine.

Another key ingredient in my serum is frankincense oil. This precious oil has been used in skincare for centuries due to its amazing anti-aging properties. It helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and age spots, giving you a more youthful and glowing complexion. Frankincense oil is also known to promote cell regeneration, leaving you with smoother and brighter skin. Plus, its grounding and calming aroma make it the perfect addition for a relaxation-filled skincare routine.

Speaking of calming and relaxing, lavender oil is next. There really isn’t anything lavender oil isn’t good for. I’ll go ahead and list the overview anyhow: Calming and Soothing, Antioxidant Protection, Moisturizing, Antibacterial and Antifungal, Promotes Healing, Relieves Stress. See what I mean? I put all your skin’s new best friends in this serum!

Last but not least, my serum includes thyme oil. This essential oil is packed with antioxidants and antimicrobial properties, making it highly effective in treating and preventing acne. It also helps to improve skin texture, minimize enlarged pores and inflammation, and even out skin tone. Thyme oil is a true powerhouse for achieving clearer and healthier skin.

With this powerhouse combination of yarrow, castor, geranium, frankincense, lavender and thyme oils, my face serum has become my go-to for achieving a happy, healthy, and glowy complexion. Within 6 months of consistent use, I have noticed a significant difference in my skin - it feels softer, looks clearer, and has a youthful radiance.

A side note about skin redness….there are a lot of skin conditions out there. Some redness is simply due to dry sensitive skin, others may have deeper issues that will need some internal healing by improving your gut health. That’s a deep dive topic for another time. I’m not claiming here that this serum will heal/cure all of these things, but it will definitely help ease or alleviate some symptoms, kinda like a bandage. So please keep that in mind when ordering.

One other thing, I consider this serum to be perfect for almost all skin types. I say that only because castor oil is a heavy hitter in this formula, castor oil is super thick and hydrating, which makes it not fantastic for acne prone skin. Despite all of the other ingredients that will kick acne’s tail, castor oil may not have the effect you may think. Or maybe your skin is having an over-reaction to dryness and that’s what is causing your acne and this would be perfect for your skin. I will be coming up with an acne specific solution very soon. It will have all the same ingredients, but will have either avocado or jojoba oil substituted in for the castor oil.

So, if you're looking to up your skincare game, I highly recommend giving my face serum a try. With all-natural and effective ingredients, your skin will thank you. Trust me; you'll be glowing from the inside out. You can purchase this product here: (SHOP LINK)

Here's to happy, healthy, and glowy skin!
